I want to launch the exe file (Outlook) from JavaScript.

Asked 5 months ago, Updated 5 months ago, 11 views

Hello, I am currently creating a web page in JavaScript.
I want to start Outlook when I press the button (just launch exe, not create a new mail), but I am having trouble.

"When I press the button with the code below, it says ""Access denied."""
Please let me know if there is a solution or another way to do it.

<input type="button" value="sample" onclick=outlookopen('C: ~~~~~~OUTLOOK.EXE');>


function outlookopen(exePath){
varobj = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");

javascript html

This is Internet Explorer, and it should not be possible without customizing the settings, but is that so?

Also, near the page below, there is a list of links on the left side of the page that describes ActiveX and script-related options.

Instead, there seems to be a way to start without using ActiveX by registering a URI scheme.
However, it must be preconfigured on each PC that you want to run.
